Getrag (sp) tranny, how durable?
Hey guys, I have a 5spd tranny in my '95, 305, 2wd fullsize. I guess it's a Getrag? and I was told on one of the newsgroups that they ain't too durable. Someone told me that it wouldn't hold up to the power of a 350. I'm thinking of doing a few mods to the 305 soon, then switching to a 350 eventually.
I like the 5spd and would like to keep it but is it gonna' grenade? It's on a street truck, and I can try to take it easy on it, if that will allow me to run a stronger engine [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].
Anyone know the specs for the max HP and Torque for this tranny, or where to find 'em?
Any experiences with the durability (or lack thereof [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]) with this tranny? I've heard they are difficult and expensive to repair.
I just don't wanna spend a bunch of $$$ on the motor and frag the tranny...and spend more $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ !
Thanks once again y'all, Brian.
